Design Sprints

Design Sprints are the fastest way to find out if a product is worth developing, if a feature if worth the effort, or your value proposition is really valid.

What is a Design Sprint?

Design Sprints are the fastest way to find out if a product or feature is worth developing. Our Design Sprint process takes you from a ‘challenge’ to a tested prototype in just 4 days.
This lean process allows you to learn from real user data, not guesswork, to help you innovate better and faster. It means investing a week instead of months of work.

Why run a Design Sprint?

The Design Sprint is a product for solving big problems significantly faster, in teams. In short, the process condenses weeks or months of work down to just 4 days. Don’t just build a good product, build the right product.

01

Speed and acceleration

Compress months of work into a few days with the Design Sprint process. Rapidly solve big challenges, create new products or improve existing ones.

02

Reduce risk and costs

Validate your product with a low-cost high-fidelity prototype of a testable product in just 4 days. Don’t just build a good product, build the right product.

03

Prototypes, not presentations

Validate your assumptions, quickly align your team around an idea and execute. Making decisions with confidence becomes a lot easier.

“Alignment. Solution.
Validation. Amazing”

Peter Atalla, CEO, Voxelmaps

What is the outcome of the Design Sprint?

The outcome of every Design Sprint is a high-fidelity interactive prototype, tested by real people, with clear insights on where to go next.
Documentation of the initial research results
A specific long-term goal incl. success metrics for internal alignment.
Clear yes/no answers to the questions you started with.
A high-fidelity interactive prototype, tested by real users (incl. design files and access to user test videos).
An in-depth, detailed executive summary PDF with the findings and results and recommendations on how to proceed

What happens after a Design Sprint?

Once the Design Sprint is over, making decisions becomes a lot easier. You will have a realistic high fidelity prototype of your product and insights from real people.
Many of our clients use Design Sprints to define their features roadmap, and implement this with their engineering teams after the Sprint concludes. If you’re going straight into production, we’ll arrange a day to handover with you team, ensuring everyone has what they need to execute the plan.
